Agrolivado seemed to be many people's favourite beach on Patmos. It certainly is very beautiful, with the same crystal clear water and that 'Patmos-blue' sky we found everywhere else on the island.
So what makes it so popular? The views out to the various small islands are gorgeous, as elsewhere, the sun is certainly as hot and the sea as inviting.
We think its popularity may lie in the fact that it has hit a good balance in providing facilities for visitors, but without spoiling its essential attractiveness: for instance, there are sunloungers and parasols, but only on half the beach.
There are a couple of tavernas, but these are peaceful and relaxed and serve some of the best food and drink on the island (Skippers Beach Bar, for instance). There is place to park and a bus stop, so access is pretty easy, yet it is far enough away from the main town of Skala to remain uncrowded.
All in all, we think Agrolivado has got it just about right.
